It was quite chilly this morning under clear skies with a gentle breeze. The pistes were a mixed bag of conditions around Tignes and Val D’Isere. Where it is natural snow it was good (as they had all been pisted after the softening/refreeze cycle on Saturday night). Lower down there is a lot of manmade stuff and that can be a bit skaty. However, the cannons were going full tilt this morning to help keep the lower slopes in some sort of order (doesn’t make for pleasant skiing though when you can’t dodge round the back of the cannon!). We did find a nice sun-trap on a terrace down in La Daille though. A very thin layer of cloud formed this afternoon, which made it feel a little chillier, but changed little.
Tomorrow looks pretty much as today, with perhaps a little less cloud up with the angels. The breeze should all but disappear. Wednesday and Thursday look much the same but will be a couple of degrees cooler. It may be time to ditch the spring jacket and pull out the ‘Full Monty’ winter version. Friday, Saturday and Sunday look similar with sunny periods, clouds on some of the peaks and a light breeze at height. the forecast towards the end of the week is not certain, there are areas of precipitation that are not too far away but things would have to change quite a bit for us to receive any snow.
